Wai`anae students interested in teaching visited Maile at the Capitol. Pictured are: Front Row (L-R) - Hannah McComie, Alena Greenidee, and Jewel Greenidee. Back Row (L-R) - Josh Morimoto, Maile, and Sandie Morimoto.
Ka Lama Education Academy mentors Wai`anae students, such as Hannah, who are interested in becoming teachers. This program aims to address Wai`anae's chronic teacher shortage by fostering more "home grown" teachers.
Other students who were exploring becoming teachers were part of the Teacher Cadet Program (TCP), which is in part sponsored by HAFT (Hawaii Alliance for Future Teachers) and DOE. The TCP is a one credit elective class that is available at various high schools. Farrington, Waipahu, and Wai`anae High students were in attendance at the Capitol.
